“The powers that be found something. It’s very old. It’s very powerful.”
So explains Lucy Davis’ excited Etta Candy to Steve Trevor’s attentive old allies (Saïd Taghmaoui’s Sameer, Ewen Bremner’s Charlie and Eugene Brave Rock’s Chief Napi) in a new deleted Wonder Woman epilogue clip posted by Yahoo Movies. The actress herself has confirmed that the epilogue itself was filmed during the production’s reshoots with Patty Jenkins at the helm.
Yes @PattyJenks directed. We shot it about 6 mths after we finished the movie, while re-shoots were being done ?

Titled, Epilogue: Etta’s Mission, the clip is a follow up to the recently released Etta-focused video, Etta Reminisces. Here, Etta tells her new allies that an artifact was found on the battlefields of World War I and they must recover it. If it ends up in the wrong hands, the said artifact would cause a lot of trouble for the world.
The big question here – is the “artifact” Etta speaks of one of Darkseid’s Mother Boxes? Watch the :43 clip below and see what you think.

Although there was no mention of a Mother Box in Wonder Woman, we do know, as revealed in the third trailer, that the Amazons are guarding one of the advanced alien computers on Themyscira. We also know that Justice League will see Wonder Woman, Batman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cybrog team up against Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) who has arrived on Earth to recover the boxes.
If it does turn out to be a Mother Box, and Etta and company do actually recover it, delivering it to America could potentially tie Etta directly to Cyborg’s origin story, where we know his father, Silas Stone, uses it to help save his son Victor.
We’ll know if there is a link in 80 days when Justice League opens November 17.
Justice League features a cast that includes Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne (Batman), Henry Cavill as Kal-El/Clark Kent (Superman), Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), Jason Mamoa as Orin/Arthur Curry (Aquaman), Ezra Miller as Barry Allen (The Flash), Ray Fisher as Victor Stone (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, J. K. Simmons as Commissioner James ‘Jim’ Gordon, Joe Morton as Dr. Silas Stone, Amber Heard as Mera, Billy Crudup as Dr. Henry Allen, and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Julian Lewis Jones and Michael McElhatton are also in the movie in unspecified roles. Here’s the official synopsis:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Wonder Woman is now available on Digital HD and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD September 19.
